FreeBSD 7.0 manual page repository

FreeBSD is a free computer operating system based on BSD UNIX originally. Many IT companies, like DeployIS is using it to provide an up-to-date, stable operating system.

NAME

      getauclassent, getauclassent_r, getauclassnam, getauclassnam_r,
      setauclass, endauclass - look up information from the audit_class
      database
 

LIBRARY

      library “libbsm”
 

SYNOPSIS

      #include <bsm/libbsm.h>
 
      struct au_class_ent *
      getauclassent(void);
 
      struct au_class_ent *
      getauclassent_r(struct au_class_ent *e);
 
      struct au_class_ent *
      getauclassnam(const char *name);
 
      struct au_class_ent *
      getauclassnam_r(struct au_class_ent *e, const char *name);
 
      void
      setauclass(void);
 
      void
      endauclass(void);
 

DESCRIPTION

      These interfaces may be used to look up information from the
      audit_class(5) database, which describes audit event classes.  Audit
      event classes are described by struct au_class_ent.
 
      The getauclassent() function will return the next class found in the
      audit_class(5) database, or the first if the function has not yet been
      called.  NULL will be returned if no further records are available.
 
      The getauclassnam() function looks up a class by name.  NULL will be
      returned if no matching class can be found.
 
      The setauclass() function resets the iterator through the audit_class(5)
      database, causing the next call to getauclassent() to start again from
      the beginning of the file.
 
      The endauclass() function closes the audit_class(5) database, if open.

HISTORY

      The OpenBSM implementation was created by McAfee Research, the security
      division of McAfee Inc., under contract to Apple Computer, Inc., in 2004.
      It was subsequently adopted by the TrustedBSD Project as the foundation
      for the OpenBSM distribution.
 

AUTHORS

      This software was created by Robert Watson, Wayne Salamon, and Suresh
      Krishnaswamy for McAfee Research, the security research division of
      McAfee, Inc., under contract to Apple Computer, Inc.
 
      The Basic Security Module (BSM) interface to audit records and audit
      event stream format were defined by Sun Microsystems.
 

BUGS

      These routines cannot currently distinguish between an entry not being
      found and an error accessing the database.  The implementation should be
      changed to return an error via errno when NULL is returned.

Based on BSD UNIX
FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium and Athlon), amd64 compatible (including Opteron, Athlon64, and EM64T), UltraSPARC, IA-64, PC-98 and ARM architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.
